Description

We define ourselves by means of the love of God. Having been recipients of his love, we are also ambassadors of his love and forgiveness to others. Thoughout the history of Christian spiritual formation, maturity has virtually always been conceptualised as union with God and His mission for the world. This session explores those areas of life that can possibly prevent maturity in Christ. Time will be invested in discovering in what way our wounds tend to be deeper than our convictions, and why. It will also explore how God can work through our human weaknesses and recycle them into assets of empathy in order to reach others for Christ and His Kingdom.
